      I'll bet the sounds were incredible.

      Between being there in person and watching the many video productions from that day, I can honestly say the sounds were indeed incredible!

      Maybe some day, you'll invent a time machine. If so, reserve me a place!

      Thanks Boxcab E50. With steam such as the Southern Pacific Daylight still around, you almost don't need a time machine. On the other hand, there are specific RR events that I would like to go back in time to see as they happened.

      I'd sure go with you. Would like to spend a couple of days in northern CA, southern OR. See some of the flat face cab forwards in action. Wow.

      As soon as I pack my bags! Don't think we have to worry about the TSA screeners on this trip.
    • BoxcabE50
      Ha ha! That's a great thought. Oh how I wish...
